IBM ”committed to environmental business metrics”

by | Oct 31, 2008

IBM has released new software which furthers its commitment to meeting the need to reduce energy consumption within the enterprise through effective process management.

Using principals based on IBM Enterprise Content Management, the company allows businesses to carry out processes such as file conversion, Java imaging and internal document distribution at a minimal energy output level, the company stated.

Its comments came as it announced the release of the newest version of LotusNotes 8.5 and Domino email, which will include the Domino Attachment Object Service.

This application will allow businesses to minimise inefficient storage by ensuring that all attached objects contained within messages are only stored once on each mail server, thereby saving valuable storage space and processing power.

"Organizations today are under increasing pressures to become more energy efficient and environmentally responsible," commented Art Gloster, vice president for information systems, Bryant University.

He went on to state that within his institution, IBM”s Enterprise Content Management allowed for the effective monitoring and reduction of power consumption.

To date, the company has helped Bryant to save 15 per cent in overheads, electricity consumption and storage costs, he claimed.

Earlier this year, IBM was awarded Frost & Sullivans annual Green Excellence Award for its continued commitment to the development of green applications and programming environments.ADNFCR-1861-ID-18854325-ADNFCR
